    They look like they're different materials.

    it's probably not denim. probably filson's own canvas in navy blue, but i'll let the experts chime in

    Someone on here (Mauro, Fok, I, etc.) can find out more info for you guys. The deal with Apolis, if you're not familiar with them, is that they make products with the idea of supporting global trade while donating a portion of their profits to charity. You'll read more about it in my article for the newsletter. Here's the press shot of the bag: [​IMG]

    I'm definitely going to pick it up, but its FW09 so it won't hit stores for a while. I've been wanting a Filson bag for a while but the tan or green just didn't work for me. This is perfect.

    Defintely looks cool. But I'm poor, so if the Apolis version is significantly more than the standard filson variety, I will probably just get the non-Ugandan one. Sorry Africa!

    I'm going to be talking to Shea Parton, one of the brothers who form Apolis, and will get information for you guys. We may also have another, Styleforum exclusive collaboration in the works... stay tuned...

    You guys should make some coated canvas pants next. We have waited long enough for a completely SF crafted uniform.

    That would actually be pretty awesome. I was going to buy a Mackinaw Cruiser this winter but I somehow forgot about it.

    the bag looks sick, I always thought filson luggage should come in navy or dark grey.... maybe one day.
